I used to have a humongous black cat who let me hold him till I fell asleep.  Some mornings I would wake up either with him still in my arms, or sitting on me and purring loudly in my ear to wake me up.

His name was T. (for Tasmanian) Devil.  That was more than 30 years ago, and I still miss him.

Good to see you here, Felaine!

Good morning! First (and last) cup of coffee of the day. Later on herb tea.

Wonderful what black cats think of in the night! Dido woke me up at half past three with tidings of GREAT JOY. I got the complete show: a loud purring concert, dancing, singing and hugging. Sleep was a little disturbed, but my blood pressure is well taken care of.

@Patricia, I've only tasted ONE herbal tea that I liked, Stash Meyer Lemon...the rest are MUCH too acid, with rose hips and other things that are very sour.  Or funky, like chamomile.  Gah!

I like English blends, Stash House Blend (only available as loose tea), chai...Or just plain Tetley tea with a cinnamon stick in it. 

Roibos (South African red bush) tea is good with vanilla.... sometimes.  And I love some of the expensive Oolongs.  Haven't had a good cuppa Royal Robe since I got myself in debt having my lower back fixed.  I may have that paid off in a coupla months...  But the first thing I'm going to do when I have some "extra" money is have my hair cut.  It's been a year...ugh!

Can a tea-drinker join this group?  I never learned to like the taste of coffee unless it's overloaded with cream and coffee ice cream and candy.

How I hate buying clothes! My arms and legs are a bit shorter than the standard sizes, so I always have to shorten sleeves and trouser legs. Results? Clothes never look as if they're made for me, and I feel not very comfortable in them.

Randy, did you pour fruit syrup over your pancakes? I agree about replacing appliances at this stage of my life ... same with clothes. I have so many hanging in the closet that I will never wear again because I don't do the things I used to do that required dressing for the public. I suppose I could find a little joy in a new pair of jeans and flannel shirt, but that is about all.

Brrrrr. Cold and snowy this morning. Much more winter to come to Indiana. My stack of pancakes with hot coffee sure tasted good at breakfast!  Have a glorious weekend, no matter what the weather.

Randall - I hate when that happens. I ran one for a year or so once just because I was too cheap to buy a new one. Finally got a Braun, and it's held up admirably.

Damn. My coffee grinder lost a blade tip. At my age, I hate to buy anything new, then die!
